Demetrios Flushes the Toilet Humor

Demetrios

I’ll be one of the first to admit that I like a little bit of “toilet humor” in my games. It was one of the things that attracted me to the comedy of point and click adventure Demetrios. I will also admit I found the fart and crap jokes it in to be a bit overused. That didn’t stop me from enjoying the game, though. I just found them to be a bit distracting at times.

Demetrios

The latest update for Demetrios announced a bit of a change in content. As of now, if you want to play through it without said toilet humor you can. When loaded up, the game will let you choose between three options. You can always play with the original “as intended” version, without any of the fart jokes, or an “in between” version that’s has them but is light on the more juvenile humor.

Flushing Optional

I’m quite fine with the middle ground option, myself. As I mentioned above, I enjoyed the game but did find that certain areas could have been better off without it. This also gives a bit more replayability in an otherwise “one off” genre. I’m definitely interested in experiencing the differences between the three versions now.

Demetrios

Demetrios is a game worth playing as-is, but Fabrice Breton listened to those who basically thought “less is more”. One thing that I can certainly give him credit for is being willing to cater to his fan base. Now, if you’ll excuse me I think I’ll give the other two versions a spin.

  • Fabrice really did tone down the toilet humor in the time between my preview and my playthrough for Kickstart Ventures (http://www.kickstartadventure.com/home/demetrios-review/). I really am interested in seeing how the other two paths play out now.

    • Thanks 🙂 I admit it was originally a little “too much”, so the middle option is the one I suggest to play for most people.

      The third option is there for people who really don’t enjoy that kind of humor at all.
      The adventure will still be similar, just a few differences here and there – and I think some situations may sound even more funny and ridiculous now 🙂

      • Hah. Now I really want to give the other two options a try. 😀
